Portrait of Mrs. H. O. Havemeyer, 1896


[This section of the catalogue will be introduced with a short essay providing an overview of the Cassatt Committee's efforts to document an ownership history for each picture in the catalogue. Owners and vendors of large groups of works will be mentioned (including Mathilde Valet, Galeries Durand-Ruel, Ambroise Vollard, and Payson Thompson). Significant sources of information will be identified (Durand-Ruel archives, Breeskin archive, Gazette de L'hôtel Drouot articles). Specific problems, such as increased requests for anonymity on the part of private owners, will be addressed.]
